Kitchener’s Bass Lions teamed up with Phil Irish on the release of their video for “Dynamite Quartz”. The single, which is from their album, Threes is a stripped down version of the track.
The band shares,
“We had an amazing opportunity to collaborate with artist Phil Irish to create “Dynamite Quartz” and we are very pleased with the result. In order to engage with the scope of Irish’s installations, we re-recorded Dynamite Quartz as an intimate confessional (in stark contrast to the bobastic version recently released on our EP “Threes”) and allowed it to be dominated by the scale of the art and the enormity of the space. Much of the video is presented as a stacked triptych: allowing for the kind of evocative pacing and non-liner storytelling the collaboration demanded. Joseph Murray and Kiersten Depina at The New Beat stitched the audio to the video with their thoughtful and innovative sound design. “Dynamite Quartz” is more than a music video: it is a true collaborative, multimedia artwork for the modern era.”
